The first time i ever smoked was a tri tip with mesquite, lets just say i used alot of it, maybe 6 or 7 golfball to baseball sized chunks. It was very smoky but it was awesome. Next day i had left over which i had stored in a glass container, as soon as i opened the lid the mesquite kicked me in the face..... I love mesquite on beef, but vegetables taste like gasoline.

Not for me. Mesquite is readily available all around me in North Texas. I like it for grilling. Steak cooked over Mesquite is really good, IMO, because it gets smoke flavor into the meat in a short cook. I personally don't like it for low and slow. I also don't personally like it on anything but beef.

I really, really hate cutting Mesquite. I cut a few of those so called "trees" once with my own chainsaw. Ruined a chain in about an hour.

That free wood wasn't all that free.

I have not cooked tri-tip on Mesquite -- I actually have never cooked tri tip. I have eaten tri-tip several times, and I can imagine tri-tip being a good choice for cooking over mesquite. The meat has a bold flavor, and you cook it hot and fast. I would love to taste some of that.

Cooper's Old Time in Llano,TX burns their mesquite down to coals in a seperate burn pit before shoveling the coals into the smoking pit. This really mellows out the smoke.
